11:00 am
we begin with breaking news out of new york city. an amtrak acela express train derailed while leaving penn station this morning. amtrak says it happened while the train was moving at a slow speed. the rear of the train was still next to the platform. all passengers did get off safely. it was due to arrive in philadelphia shortly after 10:00 this morning. this is an aerial view of penn station. train service into and out of the station will be delayed while crews investigate the crash. let's check in our first alert traffic reporter for a look at the affect on our area,
11:01 am
if there is any. >> the big effect is going to be for new york penn station for mass transit, but new jersey tra transit wants you to know their service is suspended. now the midtown direct is diverted to hoboken. they are cross honoring passengers. if you have to get into new york from philly, you'll have that small detour there as well. you need to find another way to get from the hoboken station to get to new york after that. this is the delaware memorial bridge. the left and right lane are closed. that's until 3:00 p.m. you can see some small delays crossing over into delaware. more construction on the walt whitman bridge. the left lane is closed headed westbound. right now no big delays there, but some pretty big delays on the vine right around 24th street. eastbound really at a crawl.
11:02 am
you can definitely see some big eastbound delays. looks like there might be some construction with lane restrictions as well. health care bill on life support? it's a scramble on capitol hill as congress is set to vote on the republican health care plan one day after that vote was delayed. that bill remains in jeopardy this morning. a scheduled vote was delayed last night after it seemed there were not enough yes votes, and president trump issued an ultimatum to republicans, vote on the bill or i'm keeping obamacare in place. the members are set to vote sometime this afternoon on the republican plan to replace obamacare, which is known as the affordable care act. the republican bill is called the american health care act. jay gray is tracking all the developments on capitol hill. jay? >> reporter: yeah, katy. there are plenty of those. you are absolutely right. time running out for the debate and deal making here.
11:03 am
this afternoon lawmakers may be between 4:00 and 5:00, though that can change, will get to a vote here we're told with the white house saying win or lose, it's time to move on. high tension as the health care debate rages on. >> do you not see how that affects medicaid? >> okay. i'm going to try to bring the tone down here just a little bit. >> i'm mad as hell about what you all are doing. i don't have to be nice to nobody when you're being nasty to poor people. >> reporter: republicans scrambling for support when enough are leaning no, enough to kill the measure just hours ahead of the vote. the gop opposition led by members of the conservative freedom caucus, blas tweet after he delivered an ultimatu ultimatum. if the measure fails, he'll walk
11:04 am
away leaving obamacare in place. >> he's tired of folks coming up th and nitpicking the bill as it is. >> reporter: while democrats are counting the votes and watching the bill, they say the health care debate may provide an important lesson. the art of the deal is different in washington. >> rookie's error. >> reporter: in the final hours, negotiations continue inside the capital with the vote expected to go down to the wire. okay. so let's lay out where we stand right now. the measure did pass out of the rules committee this morning. it now moves to the full house where it will see at least four hours of debate. some expect it to go much longer than that. democrats have hinted they may delay things here. the vote is expected to eventually come sometime this evening or tonight. katy, we'll keep watching. back to you. >> thank you, jay. some people in pennsylvania gathered this morning to hear from one of their u.s. senators and learn more about the possible impact of the
11:05 am
republican health care plan. pamela osborne is live in bucks county where senator bob casey met with constituents. pam, what were some of the concerns that were voiced this morning? >> reporter: these were parents with children who have special needs. and what we kept hearing over and over again inside of that room was the milestones that these kids have been able to make with the support of medical access and the bucks county intermediate unit. their children are talking for those who are nonverbal. there's technology that's available that will help them communicate, and it is all covered under medical access, a medicaid supported program, but that could change. they're sitting down as lawmakers in washington prepare to vote on the repeal and replacement of the affordable care act.
11:06 am
the families at today's meeting say what they have now is working for them. senator casey told me he hopes the vote is unsuccessful, adding this would have terrible consequences for the more than 1 million children in the state who rely on medicaid. >> there are a lot of things we could fix about the patient protection in the affordable care act, but what we don't want to do is be attacking the provisions that are working. over 150 million americans have better health care because of that bill. more than 20 million got coverage. >> reporter: republicans who were in support of the plan said it would give people more options, the opportunity to get the services they need, pay for those but not what they don't. when i come back at 11:30, you'll hear from one of those parents and why she's concerned about what would happen if she had to buy private insurance for her son. reporting live now in bucks county, i'm pamela osborne.

11:23 am
resources that do just that, grow healthy local food. it's called the social harvest festival. here to tell us more, david, waxstaff, who is the founder of all freeia, and you're here with the urban farm and learning garden manager. a mouthful, but basic when you get down to it, right guys? >> yes. >> tell us since you waved graciously. >> the social harvest festival is our opportunity to introduce ourselves to the larger philadelphia markets. we're having two events tomorrow. one from noon to 3:00 right here at 21st and chestnut at the philadelphia first unitarian church. >> you got it. you nailed it. >> that one will be from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., but the formats are very similar. it is a chance for people who are less familiar with the food economy, why it's important, to
11:24 am
get a little bit educated about the fact that anyone can get involved in any level or capacity, and it's a chance to learn about all freeia and how this online platform is making it easier for folks to get involved in the food economy. >> talk a little bit about the online platform. >> sure. the online platform connects people with land to grow their own food and it connects those people with those resources that they might want to grow. >> people might say this is great. i would love to do it. i just don't know how to get started. are you finding that's an obstacle with a lot of people? >> absolutely. 80% of people say they would be interested in growi inin ining of their own food, but they're intimidated by it. what do you do by that? we connect people to resources to grow their own food, someone who can help them, help them amend their soil.
11:25 am
>> david, why do you think there's this growing trend and popularity to grow your own food? >> it's really interesting. 42 million americans are growing some part of their own food today. community garden usage is up over 500% in the last six years. community gardens are sold out all over the place. we found this this area we surveyed 60% are sold out during the growing season. >> we were talking just how important it is to those who are food insecure, right? you have this divide between people who think it's really healthy and popular and they want to be in charge of where they food comes from, but it is also important and it's an easy way to supply food for the insecure. >> the >> over the last decade, there's been a lot of push to provide a supply of healthy, fresh food.
11:26 am
the problem has been there's a lack of demand because of education, engaging in understanding produce and how to prepare it and cook it. so what's so exciting about growing your local food is that you're getting more familiar with a broader range of healthy foods you may not have even noticed at the grocery store. >> right. >> you're tasting and smelling, so it is improving the behavior and outcomes of food deserts and strengthening the community at the same time. it literally is a community that's supported by the universal language of food. and we're seeing that with our advisers and volunteers who want to get behind this movement. it's definitely growing fast. >> thanks for introducing us. for the event tomorrow, i think you sold it well. >> thank you so much. >> here's a recoap. the social harvest festival is happening tomorrow from noon to 3:00 in center city.
